Aus Open 2021 Result: Tennis legend Serena Williams has entered the fourth round of the ongoing Aus Open after an early scare. The tenth seed claimed 7-6, 6-2 victory over Anastasia Potapova in the third round. The 39-year-old is just a win away to secure her quarter-final berth in the Aus Open 2021.

Serena Williams is only one win away to equal record 24 Grand Slams (Margaret Court) titles in women’s singles.

“Definitely good to be in the fourth round,” Serena said.

“I came out of the blocks not like I have been (before). But it’s all about surviving and playing better every round.”

The seven-time Australian Open champion Serena will play Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus on Sunday. The latter thrashed Ann Li of US 6-3, 6-1.
